KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress today denied any connection between the party and those involved in explosion in Burdwan district in which terror group links have been alleged and said that CPI(M) and BJP were making irresponsible comments to create unrest in 'peaceful' West Bengal.
"Both the CPI(M) and BJP are trying to create unrest in the state at a juncture when the Durga Puja festival has just ended and Eid is to be celebrated tomorrow," TMC national general secretary Mukul Roy told newspersons here.
Reacting to Left Front chairman Biman Bose's allegation of nexus between TMC and the suspected militants in the explosion at Khagragarh in Burdwan district, Roy said, "while Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is keeping close contacts throughout the state, Bimanbabu and BJP are trying to create unrest in peaceful Bengal through their irresponsible comments."
The BJP has also accused the Mamata Banerjee government of turning West Bengal into a safe haven for anti-national and Jihadi activities, reacting to the October 2 blast inside a house in which 2 persons were killed and another seriously injured.
BJP secretary Siddharth Nath Singh today alleged in Delhi that the state government was destroying the evidence of the incident.
Roy said, "The way the CPI(M) and BJP are making wild allegations and irresponsible comments, it seems they are purposefully trying to create unrest in Bengal in tandem."
"TMC does not have to learn patriotism from either BJP or the CPI(M)," he said.
Asked about the allegations that those involved in the blast had contacts with local TMC leadership, Roy said "investigation is on, only after it is completed it will be known what happened and who are involved."
Roy appealed to the people to maintain peace and order in the face of "such wild allegations."
